'Wear Nice Clothes' is the ultimate in procrastination for our writers who prefer to write satirical fashion commentary than actually do the work for their degrees. We love vintage shops, charity shops, clothes that last forever and customisation.

What to Wear Over the Festive Season.

We work out what to wear for the trickiest times.

Welcome to Polyvore!
Once again Christmas is upon us and gives us a reasonable (as if we ever needed one) excuse to drink too many eggnogs and kiss innumerable strangers. However, the main joy of the holiday season is the gorgeous clothes and many many occasions on which we can wear them.

Velvet is back and a great way to add a bit of plush to your Christmas wardrobe. The featured Silence &  Noise Strapless Velvet offering is available at Urban Outfitters and is the LBD with a soft touch. It just begs for some fun accessories. (Think a chunky gold chocker or patterned tights, not flashing Santa earrings.)

Sequins have been on the rise all year and are more than welcome when Christmas trots around. If the full on disco ball look is not for you, add a bit of subtle sparkle with a fab bag. Accessorize's Wow Union Jack Sequin Clutch lives up to its name and will make a muted outfit pop.

New Year’s Eve is a night of excitement and anticipation, so up your chances of the perfect midnight smooch by wearing an ‘out with the old, in with the new’ outfit. Everyone likes putting in a little extra effort at New Year and Lipsy does great little party frocks in standout colours, like their Jewel Pocket Bandeau Dress in white and blue.  It of course goes without saying that you’ll be needing a pair of these Dante T-strap Purple Satin Shoes to reach the heady-heights of the six- foot-two hunk by the bar. 

If I could bathe in sparkle, I would and on a recent trip to my perennial friend Topshop, I got my twinkly gold nails on a sheer midnight blue blouse. Great with a bodycon skirt, it will be my date for New Year’s Eve.

Season’s Greetings fashionistas and let us all pray that we unwrap a fabulous coat/necklace/pair of boots on Christmas Day. Or all three. Happy Holidays!
